How much to interact and how much to cooperate with a regime like the one in China is a very complicated series of ethical problems.

I don't think there are easy answers.

Although the spotlight is on Google (and should be) every institution and individual with any connection to China should be thinking about the type of regime it is and how they should respond.

The media, academics, tourists , businesses buying and selling, even simple consumers of "Made in China" should be figuring out where they stand.

pensive, do not refer to Google as Google, they are part of Alphabet Inc and the people pulling the strings should be brought to light on every turn

That's the problem with Capitalism, no amount of money is enough money. Google doesn't need China's money, they just want it. Google can (and has) gotten along just fine without it.

But Google's shareholders want money, and Google's idealistic and naive management things the world NEEDS Google.

All corporations are like this. And especially any corporations that do business with governments likes China, where the almighty dollar trumps basic human rights.

Google was caught sending traffic between its datacenter unencrypted, allowing the NSA to spy. The Chinese harassed them about censorship to ban them effectively, to avoid publicly embarrassing them. Removing the Play Store was to keep them from 'updating' a phone to spy.

Google is hoping the Chinese will get desperate from tariffs and allow their citizens to be spied to appease the U.S., it will not happen.
